main index I started a mailing-list dedicated to P900/Linux developers (like me) who are a bit above the frequently asked questions "where do I get some games" and "how to add some new ringtones".

The P900 mailing-list is hosted at FreeLists. You can search here its message archive even if you didn't subscribe.

To subscribe, click here, or send an e-mail to p900-request@freelists.org with subject subscribe - the list is moderated by me: this means that I will remove posts that aren't directly related to these subjects:

  1. developing free software (GNU-licensed or freeware) for P900 starting from a Linux environment, or for Linux environment (but directly related to P900);

  2. connecting a P900 and a Linux box for networking, backupping, etc;

  3. connecting a P900 and any infrared/bluetooth/USB-capable hardware;

  4. announcing/testing new P900-related hardware;

  5. replacing P900 operating system with Linux!

To unsubscribe, just write an-email there with subject unsubscribe (quite difficult, eh? ;-)

Some notes before starting...

  1. free software (GNU-licensed or freeware) means that one doesn't have to bother with money, registrations, key-generators, warranties, etc. Software for this kind of machines is just too little to copy around the net (like its "hacked" versions): this simply means that, except super-custom applications, there is very little market;

  2. connecting a P900 and a Linux box for networking, backupping, etc; any manner, any protocol, any mode, any possible use; this will also require some work on Linux drivers and applications;

  3. connecting a P900 and any infrared/bluetooth/USB-capable hardware; we don't care if it was a TV set or a cellular phone or a laser printer (I actually did these first!): the right word is "connect also to it";

  4. announcing/testing new P900-related hardware; we just want to know if our few bucks left will be wisely used (the first issue, obviously, is "can I use that device from my software?");

  5. replacing P900 operating system with Linux!

    This sounds quite hard, but nothing is impossible with Linux (which has been installed from wristwatches to supercomputers and even hand-powered machines!). We need:
